How to Write an Online Profile: A Man's Tips for Women

Following our GGNO Club’s Virtual Man Panel last week I decided to keep sharing “from the horses mouth.” Here is a response from “Drew” to an article I posted the other day. Drew seems very thoughtful, yet seemingly frustrated by his online dating experiences. (Sound familiar ladies?) Thanks to Drew for taking the time to help us out here. Warning: read the entire stream before you get all in a tizzy about what he’s saying. He makes some excellent points that will help you find a man. Drew: “You’re the star in your story.” While this is a nice thought for women as an esteem-boosting affirmation, it could be taken way too far.

A Palestinian man was convicted of rape after he had consensual sex with an Israeli woman whom he had deceived into thinking that he was a single Jewish man. Upon finding out that Sabbar Kashur, a 30 year old father of two, was in fact an Arab, she filed a criminal complaint for indecent assault and rape. The charge was reduced earlier this week to rape by deception. Excluding the fact that somehow the courts redefined the word rape from the non-consensual, often violent crime, to consensual sex with the wrong person, it seems that we've forgotten that dating is a game of deception.

Needing to Be Needed

What would really happen to the systems, processes, people in your life if you were suddenly laid up and couldn’t do anything? Who really needs you? And the tough question – how important is it to you to be needed?

Why are you hiding?

No one but you knows that this is covering all of the emotional and physical hurts throughout the years. Imagine what would happen if you get 'naked' and allow yourself to really deal with the pain so that you can heal.
